Room was spacious and comfortable with a Jacuzzi bathtub. Superb view from different parts of the hotel which was spoiled by horns of trucks from the near by road very early in the morning. The food was good, various choice from the buffet but the service was not up to the standard of 5 stars hotel.

I have stayed two days with my family members in Earl's Regency. This is a best hotel among the Kandy Hotels. The food was awsome & delicious... Staff also very friendly and helpful. They have a nice pool. I can highly recommend this place to stay.

This is probably the best big hotel in Kandy. We stayed in a suite in the old wing which was huge. It was furnished to the point that sometimes you get lost a bit and wonder if it's in fact actually cluttered. We had an unfortunate encounter with Wasps that came into the room when the balcony door was opened.... More

One of the best hotels in Srilanka with great hospitality and exceptional food especially the Indian cuisine. Even though we had a few issues with our booking through AGODA, Hansini at the front office helped us out and managed to sort everything out within a few hours. Helpful staff and we would definitely come back as we always do. Cheers... More

Excellent hotel. Staff were very friendly and lovely with our daughter. Food was excellent, pool warm and rooms to a high standard and clean. It's a 10 minute Tuk Tuk into Kandy town centre. I can highly recommend this place to stay.

We only spent one night at this hotel, during a brief stopover in Kandy.

Spend two nights at Earl's Regency in November 2016 and the stay was just perfect. The room was at its best and the level of hospitality was simply masterclass. In fact, the best stay so far I have experienced in Kandy. Looking forward to visit again. Cheers!
